Interval Workouts That Burn Fat
If you are struggling to lose fat with cardio, I have great news for
you. Men's Health expert trainer Craig Ballantyne sent me these 4
interval training workouts to help you burn fat!
There are all types of ways to do interval training, and research
hasn't shown us a best way yet. There is NO best interval training
workout for fat loss, however, some of my favorites are:
a) 1 minute on, 1-2 minutes off, repeat 6 times.
b) 30 seconds on, 90 seconds off, repeat 6 times.
c) 45 seconds on, 90 seconds off, repeat 6 times.
d) 20 seconds on, 40 seconds off, repeat up to 8 times.
Make sure to include a warm-up and cool-down after each.
And remember, you can use all types of interval training methods
for these workouts.
You can do treadmill running, hill walking, stationary cycling,
sprinting outside (if you do extra warm-up), kettlebell swings,
medicine ball power woodchoppers, rope jumping, rowing, swimming,
or even the elliptical machine (if you think it works).
One research study even used 8 seconds on, 12 seconds off for a
total of 20 minutes, but these short intervals are almost
impossible to do on regular gym equipment.
Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions!
